Periscope On SFWA President Cat Rambo’s Hateful And Dehumanizing Treatment of the Leading Hispanic Voice In SF

This is a tragic day for science fiction. It’s really out of control and terrible. I wish there were any recourse but to call this nonsense out, but there’s not. Rambly thoughts a bit but I’m extremely disappointed in both Cat Rambo and SFWA.

  1. Well, you definitely didn’t prove anything on your submissions post, you still owe Julie a response on how you got gender information from the Submission Grinder.

    It’s fair to say at this point, when you post something whining about something someone else did, and there is no supporting documentation, links, etc…, there is a 100% chance it didn’t shake out as you described.

    A trip to twitter confirmed that to be true.

    • Hi “Wilson”. I went to twitter to confirm Jon’s description of what occurred on twitter. So yeah, I believe what occurred on twitter occurred on twitter and it differed from Jon’s account.

  2. The “Leading Hispanic Voice in SF”? Really? Before James Stevens-Arce? Before Ernest Hogan? Before anyone I’ve actually heard of before Cat Rambo started bitching about him on Facebook? It takes a lot more books before anyone is the leading whatever kind of voice. You’re not there yet. Not by a long shot.

    And as far as “doing your journalism”, let me give you a nickel’s worth of free advice: Journalists don’t write articles about themselves with third-person headlines. Journalists don’t use flawed methodologies to pen skewed opinion pieces. And journalists don’t ask for the president of a professional organization to get kicked out for being “mean to them.” The SFWA can’t ruin your career. You’re an indie. Sack up, dude.
